Now What? Does Jesus Care About Me?
John 10:11-18

This Sunday, April 26, at 10:30 a.m.  we continue our Easter season sermon series "Now What?" In this series we are addressing questions raised by the life-altering event of Jesus 'resurrection.

Sunday we consider the question "Does Jesus Care About Me?" We ask this question because when we are honest with ourselves we know that we don't always show compassion and care for others. This is especially true when our nature is to focus on the "transactional value" – what will this person do for me or what is in it for me? We so often fail to show love and care, that we start asking if Jesus might do the same to us?
